Taking this point in to consideration,
milk feeding to the cat can be restricted as much as possible. Many
people or pet owners find it easy to feed the cat
with milk as the availability of the milk is abundant. Those people
should keep this point in mind.
When attempting feeding of milk and water to the
cat, be careful not to go for buffalo’s milk or milk with
fat percentage of above 3.5%. Since the fat content
of the buffalo’s milk is more, diarrhea is
the sequel in cats. The queen’s milk is rich
in nutrients and immunoglobulin, which needs to
be fed to the young one’s necessarily in order to boost the
immunity of the young one of the cats. Otherwise they will be highly
susceptible for any kind of infections.
Water is undoubtedly the most important nutrient
not only for the cat but also for all other animals including the
human beings. More than 60 percent of the cat’s
body is nothing but water. Water helps in digestion,
moving the digested material along the food passage,
and even in elimination of the waste products from the body through
urine. The milk and water can be provided to the cat both mixed
The cat must be provided adequate quantity of milk and
water, though there are certain short falls in feeding
the milk liberally. Milk has certainly many advantages when fed
to the cat as it rich in fat, minerals, carbohydrates, and
vitamins. When it comes to water, it must be provided liberally.
Especially when the cats were given dry food, immediately follow
it up with water otherwise the digestive problem will follow.
The supplied water must be clean and free from
any kind of contamination. In case the contaminants are noticed
in milk and water, they must be cleared at once. The milk
and water can be provided to the cat after heating them
for a while to remove the bacterial contamination if there is any.
